Black colour with a beige head. Whisky and coffee nose. Rich complex flavour. A lot of everything. Whisky, espresso, caramel, chocolate. Nice!

erickok (3533) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUL 30, 2012
A very dark black body and creamy tan head. Rich matly aroma, milk chocolate, bourbon, sticky fruit and some alcohol. Rich taste, but the barrel aging makes it a bit thin. Bit milky mouthfeel. Sweaty overall feel. Alcoholic aftertaste. A very good base beer but the barrel aging doesnít improve it for me. (33cl bottle)

Ughsmash (7136) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Bottled. Poured very near black with just about no head sticking around. The aroma picked up toasty, slightly burnt, excellent whiskey over dark chocolate, ashy malts, and some licorice.. quite nice. The flavor found more sweet-ish whiskey, oak, and deep vanilla notes than anything else, with a bed of rich chocolates and charred black malts beneath.. back to the tasty whiskey over chocolate and a kiss of vanilla bean on the long, peppery finish. Medium-plus bodied with very little carbonation on the palate.. kind of a slick feel to it.. some very good components, but the barrel didnít fully integrate with the base beer.

Almost black with a tiny brown head. Fruity with wood tones. malt, fruit, wood and licorice. Full body with a bitter after taste.

Abio (1572) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2012
Misses gas... dark brown, ok head but a bit low on carbonation. Needs a bit of a boost at the taste also. Malts, hops, roasted coffee. ok.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2012 Bottle, at HaandFestival 2012. Itís a black one, or at least dark, dark brown, and itís topped by a minimal-sized, dark beige head. Chocolate, some coffee and roasted malts and a little touch of alcohol in the aroma. Itís rather sweetish on the palate, oily, smooth and full-bodied, with chocolate and some coffee and roasted malts. Lightly warming on the palate. A bit one dimensional maybe, but damn enjoying. Rating: 9-4-9-4-17-4.3. 120505

Bottle. A dark brown one, almost clear, and with a small, light tan head. Rather boozy nose with roasted malts, coffee and some soy sauce. Roasted, coffee-ish flavor with some salty soy sauce. Caugh medicine. Full-bodied, lightly warming, quite smooth. Lasting finish. Well, itís a fine beer, but sort of one dimensional, and not my favorite. I canít really put my finger on it though. Looking back at my previous rating, it puzzles me even more. 120817

MOARBEER (92) - BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2012
Pours pitch black with absolutely zero head. Looks like flat Cola. Quite sweet and mega oily mouthfeel. Not much barrel. So far my least favorite of the Emelisse white label BA. The laphroaig BA was far superior.

Idiosynkrasie (3815) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2013
330ml bottle. Pitch black colour with no head, just a few bubbles stick at the bezel. Dark malty aroma with typical whisky notes in the background: vanilla, leather, shoe polish. Taste is moderately sweet dark malty, some treacle, notes of vanilla, leather, some warming alcohol in the finish; flat carbonation. Nicely balanced BA notes, not overdone, sadly slightly insipid.
